USAID ERA is working on improving Ukraine’s border crossing points

BCP Renovation and Reconstruction
28 November 2023

USAID, through the Economic Resilience Activity (ERA), has delivered three 1-ton scales and 312 water filled road barriers, as well as installed 452 road signs, at four border crossing points (BCPs) on the borders with Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Hungary. 

The delivered equipment is part of the rapid modernization of the BCPs, and is aimed at increasing the operational efficiency of the BCPs to improve cargo transportation logistics, thereby increasing trade volumes, grain exports, and overall transportation flows. 


Next, USAID ERA will install 30 recycling trash bins (waste sorting containers) at one of the BCPs in a move towards fostering environmental responsibility and resource recovery, in alignment with established practices in Europe. 

Between 2023-2026, USAID, through the Economic Resilience Activity (ERA), is dedicating $115 million to support the State Agency for Restoration and Development of Infrastructure of Ukraine (SARDI), Ukrainian Railways (UZ), and State Customs Services, to upgrade border crossing points (BCPs) to improve grain trade and export volumes, and passenger traffic.
